Saturday, September 10: A Day of Scenery

Jubilee Weekend continues at Wellshire with a Day of Scenery on Saturday, September 10.

This year’s Day of Scenery will take the form of a hike in beautiful Grizzly Gulch. The hike is a six mile round trip with 1000 ft. elevation gain.  The hike can be shortened to 2.8 miles with an elevation gain of 430 ft by stopping in a clearing with a rail fence that is just before a stream crossing.  We will eat lunch in this clearing.  (Those going on the six mile hike will stop for lunch on the way back down after hiking about 4.6 miles.) The trail is not steep and the pace will be casual. For more details, click here.

Sunday, September 11: A Day of Song

Living Water Contemporary Worship at 9:00 am in the Chapel and Traditional Worship at 11:00 am in the Sanctuary both resume, as do educational options for all ages at 9:55 am.
